​Sirens

This song is by Hop Along and appears on the album Freshman Year (2005).

The good people built those houses with their hands
And taught their daughters to play on tin drum sets
While an old man put a grandkid on the piano
And they played chopsticks until their hands went dead
And cats were thrown off the backs of trucks and ambled up the yard to us
Singin' all I want is a bed to lie in lovin' arms for me to die in
And the garbage man took the cans he can with Mrs. Van Holzer
If he wants to no he can't, no he can't 'cause he's a married man
And if Mr. Van Holzer found out, with his short temper
You know what he will do?
And she was singing true but the garbage man's the only one can dance real blue
And pretty soon the fire trucks and ambulance were singing too
They were singin' Ooh...
They were singin' Ooh...

So if you move out west it's best to keep a very close eye on your kids and pets
'Cause big birds have been known to dive
And carry those precious things to heavy heights
And drop them in a field
While sad sisters all come down to kneel and hold their hands to their hearts
They've learned to lock all of the things they love up
Yeah they were cryin
They were lyin' in the fields
They were singin' from the places where they kneeled
Yeah they were singin',
They were singin',
They were singin' Ooh...
They were singin' Ooh...

Someone in my head said when all you have is land things with wings can present themselves as a pretty big damn threat
All you have is land things with wings can present themselves as a pretty big damn threat
When all you have is land things with wings can present themselves as a pretty big damn threat
When all you have is land things with wings can present themselves as a pretty big damn threat
And the garbage men, and the ambulance
Oh lovin' sisters, tin drum sets,
Married women and their men,
They all were singin'
They were singin' Ooh...
They were singin' Ooh...
